Definitely an idea whose time has come!
Stan Beale suggested a T-shirt idea which I thought was great and would go right along with some other great ideas for ‘naclewear. We already have some T-shirts out there, like the BoH inspired shirt above, and I came up with the following items, which should sell like hotcakes. Feel free to add your own ideas for the gift shop in the comments.
Item # 299674839 DKL punchingbag: $29.95
Can’t beat DKL in a match of wits? Feeling frustrated by his snappy comebacks to your sincere and well-thought-out arguments? Now you can take out those frustrations and get all the pent-up, aching hostility out of your system with this handy-dandy punching bag. Manufactured to exact specifications, this life-sized punching bag bears an extraordinary likeness to the self-styled “most reviled person in the bloggernacle.” You can scream at it and it will only stare at you blankly. You can hit it as hard as you like, and it will keep popping up for more, just like DKL does online!
Item #885756868 Steve Evans Mood Ring: $49.99
Combine maximum beauty with amazing utility and take the guesswork out of commenting on BCC with this excellent bannination preventer. Unlike you, this ring will is always online, using ingenious uplinks and satelite technology to monitor the online activities of the bete noir of BCC. It changes color from baby blue (showing when Steve at his most mellow and introspective), to fiery red (meaning watch your ass–Steve’s on a rampage). The ring turns black when Steve’s offline and you can get away with murder. Comes with a money-back guarantee. If you get banned while using this baby, we’ll cheerfully refund your money and provide you with a new online identity (See Extreme Dorito for an example of our work). You’ll be back on BCC again in no time!
Item #464658585 MoArch Sorting Hat: $39.95
Are you feminist enough for fMh? Too conservative for BCC? Too liberal for T&S? Not smart enough for 9M? Too educated for M*? Not Zoobie enough for NCT? Not Mental enough for Mormon Mentality? Find out once and for all with this elegant sorting hat (seen below as modeled by mfranti), designed to tell you where you will best fit in the bloggernacle. Just put the hat on your head and, using the latest in laser technology, the hat will perform a precise analysis and tell you (in an electronic voice that sounds suspiciously like Jonathan Stapley) where in the bloggernacle you belong.
